“Captain Kurt and his first mate Jessie were amazing!!! They were very attentive, and showed us some cool things about sailing, but also was an amazing time to relax with my sisters. Captain Kurt serenaded us while steering around the harbor. We had great conversation and great laughs! Highly recommend!”

“This was such a lovely way to spend the afternoon. Kurt is a seasoned sailor who is also an incredibly talented musician. He serenaded us on his guitar to Dylan and it was magical. His first mate Jessie is adorable and makes sure that your drink is never empty. I highly recommend this quintessential MArthas Vineyard experience. A must do!”

“We had a great time as a family on Captain Kurt’s beautiful American flag sailboat! He and his first mate, Fiona, were great with our kids, teaching them the basics of steering and letting them sail the boat. It was a beautiful family time on the water. I highly recommend Catboat Charters for making memories with the family, a romantic evening, or even a girls/guys night out. A wonderful way to experience Martha’s Vineyard!”

“If I could recommend one activity on Martha’s Vineyard, this would be it! I did the sunset cruise around Edgartown Harbor. Kurt and Dave were fabulous captains. The boat was beautiful, the water was peaceful, and the sunset was stunning – it was a truly perfect evening.”

“I had the best experience aboard the beautiful Nantucket. Captain Kurt is a really cool guy and a very skilled sailor. We sailed around Martha’s Vineyard and Kurt would stop anywhere along shore if we wanted to hop off and go for a swim. Kurt was very knowledgable of the area and had a lot of fun suggestions for our trip. I would highly recommend going out for a sail and I plan on another afternoon sail when I return to the island this year.”

“We did a lot of different things on the vineyard .This was the best. The sail was at least two hours probably longer. We sailed down into katama all the way to the oyster farms. Back to Edgartown .Then past the light house and then sailed along the coast of Chappy towards open water. Snacks and drinks were included. You could bring your own. Captain Kurt was very polite and informative as to what was on shore and in the water. We had five in or party and had the boat all to ourselves. Great Trip.”

“We enjoyed a Sunset cruise before having dinner in Edgartown. Captain Kurt gave us a beautiful tour of the homes and ships docked in the harbor. Great appetizers and wine was a perfect start to a beautiful summer evening.”

“My friends and I went on catboat charters in August! We spent the day sailing around Martha’s Vineyard – the Captain, Kurt, took us to all these amazing and secluded spots around the island! We stopped for snorkeling and a swim in a beautiful spot off Chappy and returned to the boat to enjoy champagne and a tasty assortment of cheese and crackers! His first mate, Holly, did a wonderful job and took a bunch of amazing pictures! They were both extremely knowledgeable about the Island, teaching us about the history, culture, marine life, and all the places we were sailing by. The boat is absolutely beautiful and it was clear the captain was a skilled and experienced sailor. For someone that has been on a lot of charters, I can say that hands down this has been my favorite. It was the highlight of our summer and we fully plan on returning next summer for a day charter and also a sunset charter! Thank you so much to Kurt and Holly for their amazing hospitality and a perfect day on the water!”

“My family and I took this charter out of Edgartown harbor for an afternoon sail and it was the highlight of our Vineyard trip. The skipper Kurt is the perfect host with his great knowledge of sailing and his familiarity of the Vineyard waters. Lifejackets and refreshments are all supplied.”
